Thanks for visiting our site. We are a small independent bookstore located on Lopez Island
in Northwest Washington owned by Bill Evans and Diane Pagel. Our specialty is Rare and Out of print Border Collie,
Sheepdog, Herding and Sheep books.
How we Came to
day I was talking to Diane about the on-line business she
had started selling rare dog
books on-line. Diane was ready to expand and I was looking for a for
a business I could do on Lopez Island. Thus Dogdazes
was born. We joined our
efforts and knowledge to start Dogdazes.com. Diane is the self
appointed "bigwig" and hunts the world for our rare book
inventory and I pretty much take care of the rest.
expanded their bookstore to include herding, sheepdog, sheep, brumbies (Horse),
Flats and Patsey Gray books.
In the future we
plan to expand our new books selection and add some specialty items.
If you are searching for a certain book and it is
not listed on your site, drop us
a line and we will search for the book for you at no extra charge.
We also purchase books.
Who we Are
Border Collies and trials at the ISDS level. She has two
Border Collies that she runs in the ProNovice level, "Tess" and
"Libbi". She recently
moved to a 10 ac farm where she bought sheep to
further her knowledge. On the side, she has a real job to support
her trialing habit. She has a personal website at www.deltabluez.com
Training and trialing Border Collies
has been my passion since 1992 and I have been
trialing at the Open Level since 1995. I have trialed extensively across the United States and
have attended the National
Finals every year since 1995.
I currently have four
Dogs. Bob & Lucy are my two open Trial Dogs (and farm dogs),
Craig is running
in Pro-Novice and I have nice puppy named Nan.
I recently moved to Lopez Island
to train dogs and raise sheep full time. This is a dream come true for
me as I now have the facilities to train
dogs and the sheep to provide them
with practical experience. In addition to training my
own dogs, I also
give lessons on Lopez Island, give clinics across the country and judge sheep dog trials.
